Rallying Against Extremism

You know how I wondered in my last post whether or not we can say Pakistanis are actively shunning radical religous elements? Well, it looks like I may have a provisional answer. That, my friends, is what is referred to as a fuckload of people.

I should say, before anyone gets too excited, that this wasn't a rally against extremism per se but an MQM rally against extremism. In other words, there is no way to calculate how many of these people actually lament the rise of the radical religous right in our country and how many of them were there just because their party bosses told them to be there. Still mighty impressive though.
